Home is where you hang your ♥... {and exciting news!}

Well, warm weather was here last week (it hit 70 degrees) but now the cold air is back. I don't mind it that much but I must admit, I am waiting patiently for Spring! This card makes me want Spring even more!
I made this with this week's sketch over at Papercraft Star. Such a fun sketch. I used some The Girls Paperie papers, a Maya Road chipboard tree, pearls and trim, Cosmo Cricket sticker and a Melissa Frances rub-on.
Here is the sketch:
I am also using the following other challenges for this:

~ The Shabby Tea Room: Buttons and Bows
~ Bearly Mine: Ribbon and Pearls
~ The Pink Elephant: Buttons, Lace and Ribbon
~ Sugar Creek Hollow: Buttons and Bows
~ Simon Says Stamp: Coffe and Cream

For my exciting news... I was asked to join the Digi Chick Hybrid Creative Team! The Digi Chick shop has some amazing treats...beautiful digi kits, templates, stamps, etc. How could I say no! So at least once a month I will have a fun and creative thing to show ya! I will post my project here on my blog but for the tutorial you will have to visit the Digi Chick blog! Make sure you check it out! There is so much beautiful inspiration on there as well as some awesome projects that you can create!

And the other night I received an email stating that I am the First Place winner in the Homamade Gifts Made Easy Valentine's Day Contest! Woo-Hoo! I won with my Kitschy Kitchen Recipe Box. You can check it out HERE!
Have a wonderful day!! I'll be back tomorrow with a giveaway! ;)

Hugs and much love...
